On April 20, the Friends of Cornwall Iron Furnace will host historic Miners Village walking tours.

Guided by local historians Michael Trump and L. Susan Wentzel, the hour-long tours will tell the story of the village, its relationship to the Cornwall mines, the architecture, and the stories of some of the homes and businesses there.

According to the website Archipedia, Miners Village – like the nearby villages of Burd Coleman and Anthracite – was built during a surge of prosperity in the local mining economy following the Civil War.

Preregistration is required by calling the furnace at 717-272-9711. Rain date is April 27.

Tours depart on the hour and cost $5 per person. The guides will take payment in cash on the day of the tour.

Proceeds benefit the Friends of Cornwall Iron Furnace.
